just loved that pic of your mom Joy. Very Zelda Fitzgerald.
Lots of entries since I wrote last --and it feels like much has happened here in that time. We enjoyed the booths, displays, presentations of the home show on Friday, worked around my house on Saturday. After church on Sun morning , as I went to leave the library my van refused to stay running. Had it towed to a garage and this morning they called to tell me the problem (fuel pump), so I bit the bullet and chose to go ahead. My van is 20 years old and I wonder if it is worth putting $ into it but doing without wheels would be difficult.
Cold wind today and some snow but warmer weather is in the forecast. So ready for spring!

Howdy-ho to you all!
A very pretty day here. Got in a good walk even with the wind.
Got into my sewing room today for a bit. It's been awhile and I have missed it.

Happy Monday! Looks like March will be coming in like a lion as we are in a blizzard watch beginning tonight. Was supposed to go to Fargo tomorrow night for an appointment at the clinic on Wednesday morning, but I will be rescheduling that! It's just for a consultation and not a treatment, so it can be delayed. Jeri, that black ice is so dangerous because, as you say, you don't know it's there! I am determined to spend some time with my treadmill tonight - I got those new walking shoes and they haven't had much use!

Good morning! It's shaping up to be a gorgeous day! I started out with a 4 mile run on the indoor track. It was too icy this morning after last night's rain. The ice was deceptive. You couldn't tell it was icy until you hit your brakes. So we opted for indoor running. Yesterday I had a great swim in the pool, 2000 yards. My pace stayed consistent the whole time. I was pleased!!

Good Morning All, Busy day today; starting with GGS arriving soon. Active indoor day yesterday. Sunday is often long phone calls day and had a couple really good walk& talks! Thank you for all the nice comments re: my mom's picture. It's a favorite. We get one warm day this week; it's supposed to be in the high 50's tomorrow. That's a start. There's going to be lots of clean up to do outside once this snow is gone!
Glad everyone is moving in a positive direction. Stay the course! Be well.

Joy what a lovely picture, you have her genes- you look so alike!


I wish your weather would cooperate over there- it's supposed to be spring LOL- keep warm.

Cold and crisp sunny day, perfect for my walk and maybe some outdoor chores later.

You do look like your gorgeous mother, Joy. Neat pic.
Light grocery shopping today so was able to get in a good walk after lunch.
Wish the weather would stop causing you folks back east so much trouble.

Noticed this feature yesterday. Don't know when it showed up!
Today is my mother's birthday. She was born 119 years ago! Even I have a hard time wrapping my mind around that. She was quite a lady; way ahead of her times. Just sharing. Hope your weekend has gone well.

Nothing much doing, decided I need a little push into Spring so signed up today for one of the biggest looser challenges starts officially in 2 weeks. Hope to phone the garage tomorrow for them to come and collect my car this week and sort out the damage from my bump last week.
Joy your hoop sounds like fun and hope all is well with your new computer exciting. Also hope your weather is improving.
Cat glad your treatment is over but be prepared for the zap of your energy and ensure you get lots of healthy nutrients to build up your reserves sane for NM.
Happy March and wishing everyone a good week

Thanks for your lovely comments gals. I really am happy to have this team of wonderful women to associate myself.
I bet your grandkids will love to see and use a lighted hoop. I bet it's cool to see in the dark. How fun, Joy.
Good luck on your new pc.
Hope you are all having a grand Saturday and not too much bad and cold weather.

Good Morning All, Had a great day yesterday starting with GGS, then his uncle, then his mom. That filled the morning and was fun. Afternoon was spent on setting up a new, refurbished PC and transfering all my stuff to it. Stretching my learning curve as it has features I'm not familiar with. Tutoring accompanied the set-up. Then dinner out and a long visit with DGS! Home by 8:30 p.m. and tried my new toy---lighted LED hoop--that freaked Sugar out and she left the room! It's going to be a challenge, it's lighter and smaller in diameter, making it harder to hoop with. The challenge will be good and it will make off body moves easier. Fun! Can't wait for the grandkids to visit and try it; it all comes so easy to them! Read late into the night and enjoyed sleeping in this morning.
CAT and Judy; I'm so glad you are on this side of the treatments! I really admire how you've handled all that you've been challenged by! Time to heal, spring is for new beginnings!
I'm so glad to be headed into March; alas, it's supposed to come in like a lion! Lots of rain predicted for the weekend but right now it's a sunny calm morning. Be well everyone!

HI Gals
Joy those younguns will certainly keep you entertained.....and busy. Hope it was a good day hun.
Patti I hope your Friday was a satisfying and productive day...........it's the weekend YA!
Marilyn love your hubby's sense of humour LOL. I agree with you too- this team is a safe and supportive place to rant if needed an share successes too. How often do you get this in the "real" world?
Lynette the last time I went to a home show was back in the 70s. You had to queue for eons to get into the show houses. One had all the bells and whistles you could ever desire and I could see Pete's face fall when we realised we could NEVER afford anything like it. I remember distinctly saying it was all fantasy and that I was more than happy with our ikkle home- that cheered him up.
Cat I am so pleased it's all over hun, now your body can heal. Take care of yourself we all love you on here, Judy too has been through the mill and you've both borne your illness with good grace. I pray you're both soon healthy and well very soon.

Miserable grey clouds today and not much planned. I so need to get into the garden but the rain comes and goes and leaves it too wet....Come on spring!! emoticon

hello ladies! I'm looking fwd to the home show today. I can dream...........
Yes, it is lovely to have on-line communities and the computer technology to do lots of things. I only regret that I don't seem to read as much as I used to do. I love my library and they offer so many things. Tues night, I went to a talk by a prof from one of the local universities about the old "freak shows". Libraries are not just about traditional "books" any more.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Everybody!
Jeri and Cat, that is very strange being kicked off Community teams. Oh well, you are both definitely wanted here.
Patti, TGIF!
Anne, glad you have been able to get things done at home. That reminds me what a blessing it is to have access to so much technology. When the weather is bad like it has been this winter, so many things can be accomplished online that don't necessitate a trip out in the snow. Now you can pay bills, transfer money online, get medicine in the mail, renew your drivers license, etc.
Lynette, Glad that you are able to keep up your walks.

I have said this before and will say it again- I can't tell you how much it means to have all you ladies to chat with and commiserate with come hell or high water-- in this case high snow. The trunk of the tree in front of our house is now buried in snow up to 5 or 6 feet. I told DH that when the weather starts warming up we should go out and shovel snow away from the tree or the pile will never melt. He said he wanted to leave it so he could go out in play in the snow when it gets hot in July....LOL. More snow is on the way this weekend.

Have a great Friday!
Marilyn

Took a hard walk on the rocky beach and up a hill that has the steepest incline I've ever seen. It felt good to stretch myself.

It's getting to be a LONG winter for too many of us! At least we have some sun today, but it's deceiving because the temp is -20 windchill. It's so easy to just bundle in when I get home from work, but I really need to talk myself into going to pickleball tonight. In need of some exercise!

Good Morning All, Unplanned day today. Sun is shining but still too much snow on the walks to walk. Snow boots have bit the dust; I may go shopping for some new ones and need to grocery shop too. Guess it will be an "errand" day. May chance a walk later with my hiking boots on. Snow is packed enough that they might work. Enjoy your day everyone!

snowing again but I got out this morning with a friend for a visit to Ikea. So we got in some steps and supplies for some projects. I always have lots of ideas but follow-through is a bit of a problem emoticon

Guess I've missed more days than I realized. It's been a busy week, with activities on the schedule every night. Since I'm all tired out and ready for bed by 9, doesn't leave enough time to get in all my Sparking (nor exercise)! We're also getting more snow today, and it's cold and windy. I know the weather must be a lot harder for those of you who aren't used to this kind of weather, and hopefully it will last a short time. You must think those of us who live in it for 5 months every year are crazy -- and you are probably right!!!! emoticon

Good Morning All, Tired this morning; up late last night reading again; a problem when I'm reading a good book. Usually I stick with shorter material but the cold weather finally got to me. Missed yoga again Monday night and probably tonight. Streets are clear but the parking lot is like an ice rink. GGS is coming again this morning. All is well.

Jeri I don't think I could cope with your cold temperatures LOL. My Canadian SIL thinks we're wimps when I say it's -2 and don't want to venture out LOL
Hi there Patti happy hump day hun- down hill to the weekend now.
Joy glad you enjoyed time with your GGS, love the picture of you with him. he's a sweetie.
Lynette hope you got your walk in.
Anne I don't have to tell you you might have after-effects from the accident. Take care hun, glad it wasn't worse...........shame the other driver could not have shown some concern (some people !!!)

Lovely day here but cold, ST workout today to keep to a challenge laid down by a team then a dental check up this afternoon.

Bit of a rough start to my day when stuck in slow traffic on the motorway a car bashed into the back of my car. I was hardly moving but got shunted forward no personal damage just a bit shaken. Other car was ok and the business woman driving did not even ask if I was ok. gave me her contact details and then left. Not a huge amount of damage to my car but once her insurance company make contact it will have to go to the garage to get repaired. No problem driving it. Did not go for a walk so generally gave today a miss. Back to tomorrow we never know what is ahead of us and I am grateful that this is the first accident I have been in in all the years I have driven (35)

Good Morning All,
Lynette, I really admire your getting out there and walking. Sugar and I are missing our walks! No puddles but still a lot of ice and snow on the sidewalks! Up to 7F here this morning already and the sun is shining! The sunshine makes such a difference. March is just around the corner and this cold is really rediculous!
Had so much fun with GGS yesterday! His bottom teeth have come through and I could tell that he feels a lot better! It's been a couple of weeks because of the weather. Thrilled that he was obviously glad to see me and be here; not always the case at 9.5 months!
Life is good, cold, but good. Stay safe, warm and active everyone1

Speaking of our weather, the other day our temp at our house was -28F. The coldest spot in the nation was about 50 miles away at -32F. We live in the middle of the country (sort of), so it's very odd to experience this type of cold weather. Our wind chills were -37F. I mentioned it on a facebook group I belong to, and a guy on there said, "That sounds like the Isle of Man's weather right now." So I looked up the current Isle of man temperature, and it was 44F. I told him there was about a 72 degree difference. He said, "Well, it's the wind and the cold here. You'd have to feel it to experience it." I've never been to the Isle of Man, but I don't think any wind chill would make 45 feel like -28, or even -37 since we were talking about wind. Maybe I'm wrong. As I said, I've never been there.

It's hovering right at 1 degree this morning. I'm good with that.

OMG your weather girls!! Sounds like your managing though.If it were over here the country would come to a stand still LOL
Very cold and windy today,I think it will be the bike today- likely to get blown into the sea if I were walking along the beach LOL
Jeri and Cat you're best off out of the team if that's their attitude.
Lynette nice to see you posting!

They kicked me off the community team last year. I felt bad then decided it was for the best. No guilt. I have not volunteered to lead any newbie teams for about two years now, either. Just not motivated enough to come off motivated!
A beautiful day here but I wish I could go with you, Marilyn, to Fla next week. Have a great time.
Have a great day.

That's interesting; didn't know that could happen. I've weeded out my teams to just two that I really like staying in touch with. Skipping yoga tonight; parking lot is like an ice rink. But headed out to run some other errands and pick up another book at the library. Stay safe and warm!

I just got an e-mail that they've kicked me out of the community team. Apparently, I'm not active enough for them. Oh well. That's not exactly the way to win friends and influence people. Sometimes people have other things going on. Sometimes we have to step back for a while! Heck.

You girls are coping well with all the snow, wow another 6 inches Marilyn...
Mixed weather here to-day we had sun, rain, wind, and hail. I was around the house chores, treadmill and reading. Have started using Twitter and am doing feeds for the education centre and a personal one. Lots of interesting links to articles and people passionate about improving healthcare. Back to work tomorrow.

Hi Everybody!
We got another 6 inches of snow yesterday, but it is beautiful. And we are warm and safe and no freezing pipes and are blessed with an attached garage. So much to be thankful for.
I am getting my hair done today, as the roads are remarkably clear.

I am sad that there is only one more episode of Downton Abbey this season, but that means 2 months of serious winter weather has come and gone. Yeah!

I am really looking forward to our trip to Florida next week. We have never been south in the winter. It will be a welcome break from the cold.

Glad to hear everyone is staying warm and trying to be active on some level.
It is so nice to get reports from everyone from all over with so much encouragement when others need it. have a great day!

Marilyn

Good Morning All, Beautiful day here yesterday! Quite a bit of thawing and I so wanted to take a good walk; alas there was just too much snow and ice still on most of the sidewalks. Poor Sugar got so excited when I put on my shoes, I didn't have the heart to leave her home and let her ride over to the library with me. I did spend some time in the yard with her. Now cold again, but at this point the teens don't feel that bad.
Up early GGS comes this morning, it's been a couple of weeks and i've missed him!
Enjoy your week everyone!

knew it had been awhile since I last checked in but after reading a looong time, I finally found my last post on this thread. Time flies, whether it is having fun or not.
Busy ladies-and that includes Mother Nature! hope you are all feeling well and coping with the weather that has been even crazier than usual. We have sun today but it is cold. Walking is treacherous outdoors so I tend to march in place at my computer. Gotta hit that 10,000 step goal.

Would've been nice to stay buried under the covers this morning, but faced the cold and went to church. The sun is shining, but it is very cold out. I've decided to play pickleball today. Don't really want to go back out in the cold, but I do feel the need for some exercise! Will be able to play for an hour or so and still get home with plenty of time to put my feet up and read. Supper is going to be leftover soup, so don't have to cook tonight!

Good morning! No fresh snow. Yay!! Slick streets, though. I agree with Joy, that the winter here is making it very difficult to keep up with exercise and activity. If we were accustomed to massive amounts of snow, and had the accessories and the infrastructure to deal with it, it may be a different story. But the way it is, it's really starting to play with people's moods.
I've got a date with my hubby at the Y this afternoon. First, though, I will visit my dad. Maybe some sun will pop out later in the day (I'm not holding my breath).

Good Morning All, Cold but calm morning; I'm hoping for some sunshine later today. Spent the weekend mostly reading; haven't done that in a long time. Did keep my streaks going but just barely; my mileage is really suffering. Not sure when Sugar and I will get back to walking outside. Weather is remaining below freezing for the rest of the week, only a small percentage of sidewalks have been cleared and are now ice; the streets are better but full of chemicals. Just messy out there; I'm thankful she can enjoy the yard. I have another book waiting at the library, hope to pick it up today and return the two I read this weekend.
Jeri, glad you had a good visit and some time for yourself too.
CAT, do what you can and don't feel guilty about resting; your body needs that too.
MN, I have a renewed respect for how well you handle winter, I'm slipping into wanting to be less and less active--really need that sunshine. Enjoy a good book but have to fight the inactivity and comfort food! :)
Marilyn, just watched the ice sculptures on the news in Ohio! Beautiful but Brrrrr . .hope you are safe and warm!
CAZ the daffs are amazingly hearty, they will be fine and spring will come!
Be well everyone!

So much for spring weather, it's dipped again and I wonder if we'll lose the daffs. -1 this morning but so sunny, sure it'll warm up later.
Jeri glad you had a good visit.
Cat glad you got your walk in.

Stay safe and warm girls!

Caz, sounds like you have a wonderful community.
Joy, Jeri, Judy; the 3 J's with all the frigid snow and ice. It's good you can stay in and wait out the thaw.
Patti, you are far behind the 3 J's.
Anne, you are with Caz in the better weather.
Wonder what Marilyn's is like.
All I know is the sun made it out here and the wind is now just a light breeze. I was able to pull myself up and out for a decent walk before lunch.

Lovely pictures of snow around but I know the day to day reality is not nice. Stay warm and safe girls. It looked lovely here to-day but a cold edge to the air. Had a slow parkrun this morning and went to the library and shops after lunch. Working on the ward tomorrow morning so looking forward to that.

I've been lazy today. My stepmother finally made it in to see my dad today, so I will take today as a mental health day. I had a good evening with him last night. It's been a week since she's been to see him. I think I'll spend tomorrow afternoon at the Y.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Haven't gotten much accomplished today except to put a batch of chicken & kale soup in the crockpot. Will make some cornbread to go with it. It's that kind of day -- windchill of -30 to -40. I'm staying inside, tucked under a throw with tea and Kindle in hand!

Good Morning All, Well, sorta. I slept in this morning; it's a real mess outside. We have ice/sleet/snow and rain. Most treacherous is the ice. We're right on the edge with our temperature hanging just below freezing. I have power and no broken pipes; more and more are less fortunate. House is restocked with food and I have a good book. So far getting my exercise in but it's getting harder. Just funky. Tired of it all even though I am greatful to be safe and warm. Need a warm up; My pavement all has about 1/3 an inch of ice on it. Staying in. Glad it's Saturday; fewer people driving. I am well.

Anne, well said about the fatigue. It is definitely a different kind of "tired" I am feeling. But again, things could be so much worse. so I have to be grateful I'm doing just fine! Yes, the snow can be so beautiful! But I've had enough beauty now and am ready for spring - it will be a while before it gets here! Everyone enjoy the weekend.

It actually looks really nice outside. The sun is shining and reflecting on the snow. Our office is in the middle of a farm, and there is snow piled everywhere. White, and trees, hills and cows, and wood plank fence. That's all I can see. It's a very pretty view.

LOL! I echo JERI! That said this is the best day we're going to get and the sun is shining. Roads are passable and I'm headed out to the library, post office and grocery later this morning. Bad weather on the way, they are not sure what (rain/sleet/snow) but they are pretty sure there's going to be a lot of it. Nothing to look forward to for the next week.

But. . . sun is shining, no wind right now, I have power, no broken pipes, roads are passable and all is well. Stay safe and warm.

Hi Everybody!
Cat, the oyster stew is cream based. Yummy, if you like oysters. I have never heard of a
tomato based oyster stew, but there may be one.
Very cold here today, so I am going to work out inside.

Have a great day!

Good morning, day off work and lots of catch up housework (which I enjoy). Nice just to have the day to my self + my furry boys. Walking and running not enough podgy middle returning I know I have been snacking and neglecting S.T maintaining does not let you take your eye of your health goals.
The pictures of the snow look beautiful but I know reality, keep warm and safe hope it melts soon.
The fatigue that goes with your treatment girls is different from tiredness and can be overwhelming keep mobile but do not push your bodies they need to heal xx
Caz glad you had a good night .
Must go sheets ready to come out of the washing machine :)

I see more severe weather is headed your way, keep safe.

Feeling bog eyed this morning, lovely day out yesterday and a sumptuous meal at the Cliff Hotel last night, John and Vicki came home for coffee after and didn't leave til gone 12!! emoticon I needed emoticon .

I want to get my blood pumping this morning and wake up- bike is calling me.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Tiring day today with appts and rain and cool temps that just got stuck in my bones. I am beat.
And, to make it worse I never got in a walk today. Ugh.
You gals in the cold stay safe and warm.
Caz, thanks for the hair cut lol.
Marilyn, is your oyster stew cream based or tomato? Not that I like oysters, just curious.

Sorry about spreading the cold MN temps to the rest of you! emoticon Congrats, Caz! Hubby and I have also been married 41 years as of last September. We must've been child brides, right? Cat, hand in there for the last half - hope the time goes quickly! I have been gone and running so much that I've decided to skip pickleball tonight and stay home and cook/eat supper with hubby. Making a SP recipe - baked chicken breast stuffed with swiss cheese and asparagus. So easy to make but looks so fancy!

Hi Everybody!
Caz, Congratulations on your anniversary! What a wonderful thing to celebrate.
Joy and Jeri, my sympathies to you on all the snow. We have had quite a bit here, but it is
pretty much the norm for northern OH. This extended period of below zero temps is getting
to be hard to take though. I feel terrible for mail carriers and people who must use public transportation.

Judy, it is wonderful that your radiation treatments are over. It is great that you got thru them like a trooper.
Cat, Glad that you are enjoying some warmer weather out your way. Way to go!


Jeri, I am glad your vision enhanced goggles arrived. An indoor swim is just the ticket in this cold weather.

I have been able to get out for most of my appts. this week, but optional trips out of the house are on hold til it warms up. Last nite we made some wonderful oyster stew, a different version
of what we had for Christmas Eve. We were reminiscing back to Dec. when nobody was
sick of all the snow yet. Fond memories....LOL. I want to resume my walks outside when it gets back to 20 degrees.
Have a great Wed.!

Marilyn

Good Morning, -2 here now; down from -7 this morning predicting -20 tonight, actual/not wind chill. I was happy this morning to wake to power and no busted pipes. Clear and sunny if cold today. A plow has been down my street and piled 2' of heavy snow across the front of my driveway. I will not stay out long. But will check it out later. Move it if it's not hard, cover it with heavy black plastic and try to melt it if it is. Nothing like solar power snow removal; don't know what we'd do without it. Sun should help the streets a lot today now that a plow has been through. All is well, really! Stay safe and warm everyone!

Good morning! Brrrrrr!!!! It's been a while since Kentucky has experienced negative temps, and this morning it is -7F with windchills down around -22F. I'm bundling up warm and going to work. Yesterday we tried to head out to work, and our daughter asked us to stop at her house and pick up her paycheck to deposit. She lives a half mile back a gravel lane, with a bazillion feet of snow that the county won't plow because it's a private road (6 houses are down that lane). Anyway... Long story short, we got stuck and had to get pulled out. That was a fun adventure! Here's hoping to no fun adventures today.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good to hear you are back and done, Judy. Continued good results.
I'm half way through mine so I can see the light.
Got my hair cut today. Of course my SO doesn't like it as it's too short for him. Oh well.

Wow, I have missed posting for longer than I realized! Had my last radiation treatment Monday and am all done now except for follow-up checks with my radiation oncologist and my surgeon/gynecologic oncologist. Cat, I find that the treatments tired me out, too. Here I had lots of time to shop and just didn't feel like it. That's probably a good thing for my credit card! Back to work and "real life", and hoping the rest of the winter passes quickly! We are getting very cold weather, but the snow this year has decided to hit elsewhere. I feel sorry for you guys! Fargo did get about 5 inches while I was there, but they did a good job on keeping the streets safe so I didn't have trouble getting around and am thankful for that! This is a busy week, but next week I'm back to getting serious about exercise!

JERI I'd stay put; it's a mess out there; especially on roads that weren't cleared yesterday!
I just came in from shoveling again, new stuff is light and easy to move. Anything from yesterday is ice. I've alread had more than 3", hoping it's done for today. Stay safe and warm!
